On the R.H side of the carb behind the automatic choke down on the rear throttle shaft there is a pin running thru the shaft with a lever that will lock it out. If the choke is not fully open or the weight behind the auto choke is not dropping the lever will not relase the secondaries to open.

I have that same motor in my '71 SS El Camino!
I hate to tell you this, but you might have a bad cam. Remove your valve covers, start it up, and make sure all your rocker arms are rockin' the same.

1979 el camino fuel filter


if you have a quadrajet carb it will be right at the fuel inlet, front of the carb. you may have an inline filter instead or also, this would be in the line between the fuel pump (front left side of engine block as you look at the engine) and the carb

i usually remove the one that is in the carb and put in an inline filter myself, it makes replacement so much easier.. the carb housings like to strip out

1984 305 El Camino / stock, was running fine, now it stalls when I get off the freeway at stop sign. After a short while it will start again but acts like it is choking.


Check your accelerator pump. It's on the side of the carburetor, near where the fuel line enters. It costs about $10 to replace but it causes a lot of headaches.

The blinkers dont work in my 83 el camino. i replaced the switch in the column and checked all fuses and relays. everythings good. hazzards work also horn. all of witch is in the turn signal switch. need...


Did you recently put wider than stock tires on your car? The wiring harness for the rear lights runs down the outside of the drivers side frame rail, wider tires will rub on the harness and cause damage to it and subsequent light failures.

Fuse should be under dash on left side. Providing that there is power there and power at the signal switch (and bulbs are good) likely there is a problem in the signal switch.
